Senior Alina Mattson Reflects on her Second Trip to Haiti
I had an opportunity to travel to Haiti with an organization called Work my junior year at Sewickley Academy. What struck me about this organization was their integration into the communities and their promise to make families self-sufficient instead of offering outside solutions that would fix their problems short term. They do this by making sure both parents are in stable jobs and their children are placed in school. While in Haiti, we got to see first hand how Work functions and what they strive to achieve.

On a fun Senior Night, it was fitting that Dave, Jared and Will played so well. Dave had a season high of 14 rebounds to go with his 16 points. Will had another strong rebounding night with 6 while playing outstanding defense, and Jared had another solid all round night contributing in multiple areas. Many thanks to our outstanding seniors and their families for all they have meant to our basketball program and the Academy! Hopefully, our season lasts a long time to maximize our time together.
